KINSHASA, Sept 7 Democratic Republic of Congo's
state mining company Gecamines has submitted an offer to buy
Freeport McMoRan Inc's majority stake in the Tenke
copper project, Gecamines' interim director-general Jacques
Kamenga told Reuters on Wednesday.
Freeport agreed in May to sell its 56 percent stake in
Tenke, one of the world's largest copper mines, to China
Molybdenum Co Ltd for $2.65 billion.
Toronto-based Lundin Mining, which holds a 24
percent stake, has until Sept. 15 to exercise its right of first
offer before the deal goes through.
